Forces of Nature in 250
Use 250 words or less to describe a force of nature and the effects it has on us.
So hard a word for so soft a thing. It falls in a gentle patter or a thunderous deluge. It brings life to the desert or takes life in a flood. It is wished for and hated. It will darken your day but can hide your tears.
“I love the rain.” has been said in a thousand songs. We sing about it and curse it. We hate when it catch us. It soaks us to our bones driving us into our homes... where we get into a shower? Man has made the rain his servant but it can still show us it is the master of our destiny as it takes our lives away so simply as stopping the breath from getting to our lungs.
You can die in the rain
Or you can make love in the rain.
Most of us can't drive in the rain but we laugh when we run in the rain. Some birds can't fly in the rain but we without wings ignore it and fly anyway. We don't want to walk in the rain, but we are happiest when we are singing in the rain.
Who would have thought that water from the sky could be so amazing...
... just by being so simple.
Give it a try.
